Amethyst Realm, 30, announced this week that after much deliberation over the look and size of a ring, she is now engaged to a spirit named Ray.

And now she’s found The One. “Then, one day, while I was walking through the bush, enjoying nature, I suddenly felt this incredible energy. A new lover had arrived,” she...

    We're taking Larry deer hunting this weekend. After 35 years in the woods with Larry, sadly, this will be our last together. After 40 years at the same job, he finally had enough and retired this past spring. He's a mere 62 years old. He left his job on a Friday and started his new job the next Monday. Working at a local golf course. Cutting grass, doing maintenance, free lunch everyday and free golf on Mondays. He was in heaven. About three months ago, his eyesight was suddenly failing him. The eye doctor said that there was something affecting...

    Tiger Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, changed the story she told the first officer on the scene, according to law enforcement sources. The Windemere Police Department says Tiger's wife went outside, saw that her husband had struck a fire hydrant and a tree, and then went back inside the house for a golf club to use to try and extricate him from the vehicle. But we've learned Nordegren told a very different story to the Florida Highway Patrol, and it does not involve going back in the house for a club. Our sources will not allow us to be more specific....
